Day 82 of the 365 and day 3 of the sub-project of the 'foodabet'.

C is for Cabbage

For these shots I have been using a 150w studio light with softbox attached placed to the left and pointed directly up towards a low ceiling. I have a silver relector on the righ; it is one of the type that is used in car windscreens to keep the car interior cooler that I purchased sometime ago for 1.00, I have it wrapped around a piece of hard board about 3ft x 2ft. I also used a small reflector just under the camera lens. I only have a blackbackground at the moment but aim to invest in a white background so I can begin to experiment with texture layers. All set up in a tiny dining room.

Interesting to hear your setup Smile

I told myself the other day that I must use the softbox more often - it's just such a big bugger I find it gets in the way and I end up using the beauty dish instead Smile

Quote:that I must use the softbox more often

My thinking too, I wasn't using the softbox and light so I dug them out, more for practice really.

Quote:it's just such a big bugger

I have three; a small octagonal one for which I do not have ther proper fixing, a 60cm square one and a large oblong shaped one. The 60cm one was just right.

I now need to expand on what I'm currently doing and that's why I want to try adding textures. There's a couple of people on here who are pretty good at it you know Wink
